Ubisoft has been known as one leaky studio when it comes to it’s upcoming games, be it because of its wildly popular games or its executives leaving Powerpoint presentations open in the subway.
This time the leak comes via GameStop, where a listing of upcoming PS4 Games included Far Cry 5. What’s even better is that there was a release date attached to the title, with the game being set to launch on 26 November 2017.
The information was spotted by SG Gaming Info, and without any official confirmation is to be taken as rumor and speculation.
Also to be considered is that 26 November 2017 is a Sunday, and games usually launch on a Friday, so this date might be a placeholder, albeit as odd as it might be. We might hear more from Ubisoft at E3 this year. though Ubisoft has mentioned the possibility of no Far Cry or Assassin’s Creed releasing in 2017. The reason for this is to ensure all new games will have the most polish and quality as possible. “So if this means biting the [bullet] and not having an Assassin’s game, or a Far Cry [in 2017], f*** it,” Ubisoft VP of editorial, Tommy François, told IGN.
Far cry Primal was not the smash hit as the last two games in the Far Cry series were, and it’ll do well for the game to get proper development time and return fresh with new ideas.
